Parrot Cay Peace and Love
Private islands are obviously among the most desirable dream destinations for a vacation - but Parrot Cay succeeds in taking the concept of an exclusive paradise to an even more prestigious level. This high-end beach resort is known by many as the finest hotel in the entire Caribbean and indeed one of the world's most desirable. The island features several private homes as luxurious beachside villas (none worth less than ten million dollars) that you may be able to rent. These cribs are owned by big names such as Bruce Willis, Keith Richards, Christie Brinkley, and Donna Karan, among other tycoons and magnates.
Parrot Cay is a resort that is so much more than a resort. It is a veritable sanctuary in the true sense of being a sacred place that offers safety and protection amid the healing energy of the place. And there is something quite mystical about Parrot Cay, a certain frequency that inspires bliss, rejuvenation, and a connection with God or with the Universe.
Parrot Cay is only accessible by private boat, a 35-minute ride that costs roughly 550 US dollars. Maximum security and privacy makes for a relaxing, hassle-free holiday on over a thousand acres of tropical paradise and perfect white sand beaches. The accommodations are lavish and styled in understated elegance, from the beach house suites to the villas and mansions with private beaches and infiniti pools. Be prepared to experience total comfort and the ultimate relaxation as you are pampered in the paradise of Parrot Cay, where peace and love emanate from everywhere.
From Pirates to Parrots
Back in the day where fierce buccaneers roamed the warm waters, the island was called Pirate Cay. After the pirates cleared out, however, it was renamed after the more friendly, exotic (and approachable) animal, the Parrot. The vividly colored and talkative birds know as Parrots (or psittacines) are among the most intelligent birds; yet, like the pirates of yesteryear, the populations of these charismatic creatures have diminished due largely to exploitation. Perhaps the rarity and mystique of these wonderful creatures is the reason behind the Parrot Cay name. Perhaps the similarity with its previous name was decided to keep the same feel of the island, as a secure and safe hideout. Either way, I'm no historian, but I'm pretty sure every pirate worth his (or her) salt needs a sidekick parrot perched on the shoulder.
Parrots are also known as being quite high-maintenance pets, and Parrot Cay by COMO, high maintenance is what they do best. The larger parrots (like cockatoos, amazons, and macaws) have very long lifespans, averaging 80 years and sometimes over 100 years. The parrot represents sunshine and the magic of color, with its feathers traditionally used in healing rites to invoke the energies of the sun. It reminds us that there is a time to speak and a time to be silent, as well as a reminder to avoid gossip. The parrot also symbolizes new growth and new directions and inspires us to say to ourselves that now is the perfect time to pursue those dreams you once thought were out of reach. Such as visiting Turks and Caicos.
